Team Foundation Server (TFS)
When discussing development team collaboration, the topic in the Microsoft product line is Team Foundation Server. I want to point out that team collaboration
in this sense can include executive leadership, middle managers, business analysts, project managers, developers from other teams, as well as your team.
At the heart of Team Foundation Server is Visual Studio. In fact, TFS is an installable extension to Visual Studios. It is also true that TFS is also an expendable application like Visual Studio.
The user interface inside Visual Studio is called Team Explorer.
Besides Team Explorer, there is also a web interface. TFS as an application also interfaces well with SharePoint, Office, and Project.
TFS also support lab (training lab) management features.
